Dance costumes













I just realized I didn't share pictures of the dance costumes I made for my daughters dance company. She dances at Turning Pointe. I LOVE that place and I LOVE Jen who owns it. She's become a good friend to me. The cute little girl at the top is her daughter. She is so stinkin' cute! The 2 girls in the pink are no relation to me, I just wanted to get a picture of the outfits I made. The other pics are of Kelsey of course. I made those too. 25 outfits in all. Quite the job, but I got it done, and it feels so good.

Funnest re-dsign

BEFORE


AFTER




Did I really just make this?! This is my favorite re-design ever I think. I bought these 2 shirts from the womens clearance section at Walmart. It took me about 1 1/2 hours to make it. Kelsey is in HEAVEN with it. Mostly because it's a Miley Cyrus t-shirt, and she feels like a ROCK STAR.

Where have I been?

I haven't blogged for so long. Why haven't I blogged?
Well, many reasons. I have 4 very active kids. That's the main reason.
Between school, holidays, sports, movies, sledding (lately), snowman building, and just playing, I find I don't have much spare time.
And I'm really okay with that. It's been so fun being a mom lately.
When I do have spare time I've been reading. Alot of self improvement books. My 2 favorites are "Feelings Buried Alive Never Die" by Karol Truman, and "The Anatomy of Peace" from the Arbringer Institute.
These 2 books have literally helped me find a freedom I never knew existed. They've helped me find peace with everyone, everything, and especially myself.
I HAVE made some fun projects that I will eventually post pictures of. I've drawn a little here and there for Unity Stamp Co., made MANY dance costumes for my daughters dance company, I've taken some fun pictures of my family, and I've had some uplifting things to talk about. I'll get back to blogging more some day. But as for now, I'm enjoying just living. In fact, my New Years Resolution is to just live. Not just get by day to day. I'm really going to live this year, and enjoy every minute I can of it. Being careful not to take on any unneccesary responsibilites.
I would HIGHLY recommend reading the books I mentioned. If you feel like something is missing or you could use some peace of mind, these 2 books would most certainly help.
I hope everyone has a FABULOUS year this year.
